Just got started with Stardew Valley. One of my biggest questions is whether or not I'm playing optimally, as in, will I be missing specific events that only happen within a specific timeframe?
Note that I am not talking about season dependant events, such as the town events, or what crops grow in what seasons, etc. What I am asking is if there are any such events that are timelocked to say the first spring of the first year, and missing the time window prevents you from seeing that event again?
I've looked up this issue online, and I've found mixed responses. On some sites like GameFAQs, users claim that there are a few townsfolk that have year-specific events that can't be obtained once that year has elapsed, like relationship events for Alex, Penny, and some of the other bacherlors and bachelorettes. On the Steam discussion boards, it seems a consensus is that there are no permanently locked out events.
So what is it?
